STEP 1. We will start this first step by drawing a circle for Mary's head and then lightly sketch in the facial guides.   STEP 2. Using the shape and lining you just made, draw out the side profile of Mary's face like so. The curly lining along the side of her head is for her hair.   STEP 3. Using the facial guides that you drew in step one, begin sketching out the shapes of Mary's eyes and color in her iris' as well as draw and color in her eyebrows. Draw a simple nose shape like so, and proceed on.   STEP 4. Finish sketching out her nose and then draw in her mouth, and sketch in some eyelids or lid creases.   STEP 5. Now that Mary's face is all sketched in, you can begin working on getting her cloak or hood of her shroud drawn in. Use or make simple lines for this task like you see here, and also be sure to draw in the part between her head for her simple hairstyle.   STEP 6. Sketch the shape of her neck, and then draw in the collar of her clothing and finish the shroud. Once you have drawn Mary out to the best of your ability, add some detailing to the shroud by sketching in some creases, and folds. You can start cleaning up the sketch to finalize the drawing.   STEP 7. Here is how Mother Mary looks as a simple hand drawing. You can add shading and highlighting to make it look realistic if you want, but that will take an extra thirty minutes to an hour.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
